Summary: I was very disappointed with this game. I had never done zumba before and was looking forward to learning. When going through the training tutorials they would start out uber uber slow and then about the 5th step in it would speed up to be so fast that there was no way someone new to this could follow the moves let alone learn them. I gave up on the tutorials and decided to just start trying to do one of the classes. This too was frustrating.
Summary: I personally love doing zumba! Every week I am out there dancing in the classes, but here lately it has been difficult to attend them because of my new job. So I ordered this game to fill in during the games and get my heart racing during the mornings before work. Well What the heck went wrong about this game?!?!?!?!?!?! I was looking forward so much to this game and enjoying it.
Dont buy, very frustrating! Waste of money (i returned mine within 4 days)

Summary: I bought this product for myself thinking it would be fun and liking what i saw in the comercials. The one thing i did like about this game was the music. What i didnt like was the fact that the menu was very hard to navigate and very confusing. There was also very little instructions. The dancer on the screen just starts dancing and doesnt even tell you what to do. Youre suppose to just automatically know the steps while youre twirling around.
Summary: I wanted to get fit and not spend big bucks on the full Beto Zumba disk set. I am a beginner and the moves are not very easy to follow. The tutorials are a joke. I thought that since we had the Kinect I would see my avatar on screen and be able to tell if I was doing the moves correctly. Not so. You have to go through a lot of annoying set up steps (which the Kinect doesn't always read) before you can even get to the dancing. It's not very intuitive.
Summary: If you're looking for a review of this game, I have a few short points for you. lackluster menu completely inaccurate motion sensing cheesy graphics poor tutorial mode Dance Central was a much, much better experience, I wish that Zumba was more like that title. There isn't anything really like the Break it Down option you find in Dance Central in this title.
Summary: Everything Justin McNeal said in his review are the same issues we came across in our game. My fiancee is a Zumba instructor and she was extremely excited to get the game. I can't believe they released it in its state, it's complete garbage!
Summary: Of all the games coming out for the Kinect I had been looking forward to this one the most, and then after playing the first games that came out (Dance Central, Your Shape Fitness Evolved , Kinect Sports , Kinect Adventures ), I was even more enthusiastic because the system was so spot on you can really lose yourself in the play - Zumba sounded like it would be a blast. I was wrong. I am so disappointed. I feel taken.
Summary: When I first read the one star reviews for this game, I suspected there must have been some level of user error, or someone wasn't familiar with how the Kinect works. I was mistaken. I bought this game for my wife (she loves Dance Central), and it has turned out to be one of the biggest video games flops ever. She made me test it to confirm how bad it is.
